Insurgents suspected to be members of ISWAP have threatened to abduct President Muhammadu Buhari and Nasir El-Rufai, Kaduna state governor
In a viral video, one of the insurgents said captives in their camp will be sold off as slaves if their demands are not met by the government
Speaking in Hausa, he said the authorities must meet their demands to avoid killing some of the abducted victims
FCT, Abuja – Few weeks after an advanced convoy of President Muhammadu Buhari was attacked in Katsina state, the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) have threatened to abduct Nigeria’s number one citizen.
The terrorists also boasted that they would destroy the country, kill the remaining passengers in their custody and sell out the others.
One of the terrorists threatened that unless the government comply with their demands, they would turn the area into an abattoir.
The saddest video comes from bandits who kidnapped victims of the Abuja/Kaduna train, may Allah rescue them all Ameen. Our votes will speak for us come 2023. @Nura1

Speaking in Hausa, he said:
“This is our message to the government of Nigeria and just as you have seen these people here, by God’s grace, you will see your leaders; your senators and governors will come before us. These ones you are seeing here, we will keep some as our slaves and sell them off just as our Imam told you in the past.
“Just like the Chibok girls that were sold off, we will equally sell these ones as slaves. If you don’t adhere to our demands, we will kill the ones we need to kill and sell the remaining. By God’s grace, El-Rufai, Buhari, we will bring you here.”
